Pulse measurement on the wrist

  • The optical sensor measures your heart rate directly on your wrist, around the clock and without a chest strap. A colored indicator shows the pulse-rate and the beats per minute in real time.

Adapted for you

  • To help you achieve your own goals, you can download Advanced training plans from Garmin Connect on your watch. You can even customize the data fields and download screen designs, widgets and apps - for free on Connect IQ.

Run all routes

  • An integrated accelerometer stores data about distance and pace on the track or on a treadmill. A separate foot pod is not needed.
  • After training, the activity tracker² stores your steps and calories burned over the day. If you have been sitting for over an hour, it reminds you to move a little.
  • The Forerunner 235 is compatible with GPS and GLONASS satellites and determines the current position quickly and accurately - even in heavy rain or near tall buildings.

Easy to use

  • Clear, easy to understand charts, graphs, maps, and more will help you record your activities, track your progress, achieve your goals and wirelessly upload date and share it directly with the online network Garmin Connect. Compete in weekly step- or running challenges against friends and family members and compare your results with the Live Track function in real time. The wireless connectivity features of the app are very useful. Get current weather conditions, forecasts and Smart Notifications directly to your compatible Garmin device.
